{Not} Back-to-School Blog Hop ~ Meet the Students

It's Student Photo Week at iHomeschool Network's {Not} Back-to-School Blog Hop. I would like to introduce to you the 2013/2014 students of Pursuit Academy.

We have students here, there, and everywhere. And each year we have homeschooled it has been different. This year we have one starting Cosmetology school in October, one in our public high school, and two homeschooled 3rd/4th graders. Here they are:

I'll update this with her 1st day photo once she starts school.

Kyndal is our oldest. She is 18 years old and graduated from public high school in May. She is enrolled in cosmetology school and begins her classes on October 1st. She will spend 8 weeks doing all of her classwork and then will move out to the salon for training. Her schooling will be complete in September of 2014.

Dawson is our second child. He is 16 years old and is a junior at the public high school where I graduated. This year he is taking Algebra I, U.S. Government, Chemistry, English III, Drawing/Painting, Multi-Media, and FTA (tutoring in Geometry to work toward his A+ Scholarship requirements).

Eli is our third child. He is 9 1/2 years old and is in his second year of homeschooling. Eli is currently a 3rd grader and will promote to 4th grade in January (although we call our younger two 4th graders already). His classes this year are Old Testament, Grammar, Handwriting, Spelling, Multiplication, Writing, Personal reading, U.S. Geography, Science (various unit studies), and a year-long Literature study with Paddle to the Sea by Holling C. Holling.

Brynne is our youngest child. She is 8 years old and has homeschooled since her 6th week of kindergarten. Brynne is currently a 3rd grader and will promote to 4th grade in January. Her classes are the same as Eli's as they are homeschooled together.

If you would like to read more personal information about each of the kids, you can go to my recent post "U is for Us".

  1. Love the boards. So clever. =)
    Your year outline sounds fabulous.
    Yeah, thinking we will do a similar outline too for Road Trip USA. We may need to only do 3 lessons per week as I tend to get side tracked easily. I always have the best intentions, lol.


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
